As if suffering from pimple breakout isn’t bad enough, we now have to deal with acne scars as well. Acne scars can be quite traumatic. I know someone from school back then who was painfully shy because of her pimple scars. Which is too bad because she was pretty awesome. If you’re dealing with the same problem, I wouldn’t want you to hide away from people because of your scars. To help you with this, here are some recommended skin care treatments that you can do to erase, or the very least, lighten your pimple scars.

Use Homemade Products – If you don’t want to use over-the-counter products, you can make your own acne scars remedies at home. You wouldn’t believe how many pantry-staple ingredients you can use to help you get rid of your acne problems.

  • Lemon. Squeeze half a lemon, soak a cotton ball in lemon juice, and gently apply the cotton on your scars. Leave it for 15 to 20 minutes and then wash your face with tap water. The acidity in the lemon will help lighten the pimple scars. Just make sure that you don’t stand directly under the sun when you do this treatment.
  • Tomato. Slice a tomato and put the slices directly on your scars. Keep them there for 20 minutes and then wash your face with tap water. Do this every day for at least a month and you’ll see a noticeable difference on your scars.
  • Baking soda and water. Make a thick paste out of these two ingredients. Apply the paste on your face (make sure you thoroughly wash your face beforehand) and leave it for 5 minutes. Clean your face afterwards with warm water. Do this DIY remedy every day.

Over-the-Counter Products – If you’re not sure about DIY acne scars treatments, over-the-counter products are available to help you get rid of your acne scars. I’ve personally used these two products so I can strongly recommend them to you.

  • Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. This can be a bit pricey but it truly works wonders. Use it twice a day, not just on your scars but all over your face, and in a month you’ll see the changes on your skin.
  • Clean & Clear Advantage Mark Treatment. For only $7, you’ll get a gel with a potent mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids that removes darkly pigmented skin cells.

You don’t have to suffer from acne scars since there are a lot of remedies that you can use to get rid of them. And like I always say, prevention is better than cure. So when you have pimples, try to stay out of the sun, clean your face as often as possible and be patient – don’t pick or squeeze your zits.
